Backlog:

I think I happened to see a forums discussion about creamy earl grey teas and a good replacement for the SpecialTeas product which is now long gone. This is one I’d recommend to you! This is a really, really good creamy Earl Grey.

Delicious creamy overtone, nice subdued bergamot (curbed by the sweet vanilla-y notes), but still a deliciously full-flavored cuppa.

Backlog:

I was rather impressed with this tisane given the fact that it’s chamomile (not my favorite). I appreciated the large chamomile blossoms (instead of the crushed, powdery bits), and I liked the softer approach of the orange notes. It’s not an overpowering taste.

A really lovely Jasmine. Not perfume-y, just sweet and exotic … this is the way a jasmine should be. Light vegetative tones that mingle with the overtones of flower.

drank Masala Chai by Fashionista Tea
4227 tasting notes

Backlog:

A pleasantly spiced chai … it has a nice sweet-yet-spicy appeal to it. I like the balance between the spicy and sweet here … this blend is really nicely crafted. The spices are strong but not overpowering. The black tea base is a strong, malty Assam and it adds a nice richness to the cup.

Backlog:

I really liked this. I’m a fan of Pomegranate … but I’m not particularly crazy about peeling the pomegranate to loosen the arils … it can be a rather tedious fruit to consume. So, I find I prefer Pomegranate teas. This one is really nice, the pomegranate and raspberry flavor work very well together, providing a tart yet lightly sweet taste that tickles the tongue.

I like this one! I love the combination of the rose and the lavender. These are not overpowering florals in this tea, just enough to give this tea a decidedly feminine touch, and with a name like “Fashionista Blend” … it should be feminine! Even though it does have that feminine touch, it would make a great breakfast blend, because it has a certain vigor to it too!

drank Basic Black by Fashionista Tea
4227 tasting notes

Backlog:

I like this one quite a bit. Bright and brisk, just like the description suggests. Pleasant flavor, really smooth. One of those teas that is nice to keep on hand … for moments when you want something that is bold, robust and still easy to drink. Very nice.

I’m not a fan of Chamomile. I can usually stomach it if it has a nice amount of mint to it. This, however, was nice. Sure…it’s Chamomile but the Orange plays in nicely! I don’t think it would have worked for me any other way. I just might add Chamomile with the pairing of Orange to my list of do-ables!

Nice!

Fairly satisfying for a Jasmine. I am not a Jasmine Tea Guru by any means. It’s not my favorite from them but it’s not bad at all either! It’s a nice floral Jasmine, regardless!

I like jasmine a lot, but most of them taste about the same to me.

Backlog:

This tea took me by surprise … first in learning that it wasn’t just a rooibos blend, but a black tea and rooibos blend. The combination of these two leaves makes for a lighter base, and I think that this allows for a richer chocolate flavor to come through. I also love the coconut and vanilla additions to this … it gives the cup a smooth, creamy, sweet profile. It’s a bit like a latte without dairy. Nice!

I liked it a whole lot!

PS: I can’t say enough about how awesome the packaging is from Fashionista too! It is REALLY fun to receive a package from them.

I like the pom and raspberry with the green tea base and LOVE that it’s organic! This is one of the better Pom flavored green teas I have had. I prefer it cold over hot yet both are dandy! YUM!

This is a very good Chai. The spices are intense, the black tea base is fairly peppy, too! Aromatic to the nose and zesty on the tongue. A nice Zip!

Sachets:
(See other notes for loose)

Sure, I liked the loose better but these sachets are great for on-the-go and that is what I needed earlier today! I got two solid steeps out of one bag! Not too shabby!

This one smells nice…sweet, chocolaty, coconutty, and vanilla.

The taste is a bit different than I assumed it would be. Not bad, just different. It’s not overly chocolaty…but there is a bit there. The coconut is the flavor that steps-up and lingers on my tongue more than the other ingredients.

The Vanilla makes it a creamier experience.

This is pretty good. Not bad at all.

LOOSE LEAF:

I’ve had this twice now and like it alright! I liked it better the 2nd time. I can’t put my finger on WHY but I did…must have just been the right time and temp combo.

I like the black tea base – it’s of medium strength. The botanicals really shine thru nicely without being too over the top. The Rose and Lavender are darling. The orange peel gives it that nice twinge of citrus to top it off.

This was stronger than I anticipated but that’s a good thing in my book! It’s rich! It’s brisk and fairly bold. I really like that it;s whole leaf Nilgiri hand blended with Yunnan Golden Buds! YUM!

First I want to apologize to you all for not getting out my mailings. As many of you know I haven’t been around as much. I was out of town and offline for a few days and prior to that I was having work and personal issues. I hope to get the mailings out this week – at least START – but not today as the roads are NOT driveable. Hopefully tomorrow.

Now…on to this tea…

This is a solid Creamy Earl Grey! It has both the creaminess that you would expect based on the name of the tea AND the EG…I would say equal parts 50/50 or at the very least/most 60/40.

This is very satisfying. I am very happy it’s Organic, too! Woot!

Ellyn

I hope things normalize and life gets calmer..enjoy the tea!

Madeline Alyce

Glad you’re back! It’s lonely here without your reviews!

Veronica

Glad you’re back!

Sil

Woot! I was beginning to worry! I miss my morning tasting notes without yours :)

CheshireEyes

Glad you’re back! Hope things will calm down so you can have more time for tea! :-)
